TITTOYS #SF021 1/6th scale Thinking Electric Self-Balancing Scooters (model) i.e. Segway

The Segway PT is a two-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicle invented by Dean Kamen. It is produced by Segway Inc. of New Hampshire. The name Segway is derived from the word segue, meaning smooth transition. PT is an abbreviation for personal transporter.

Computers, sensors, and electric motors in the base of the Segway PT keep the device upright when powered on with balancing enabled. The rider commands the PT to go forward or backward by shifting their weight forward or backward on the platform. The PT uses gyroscopic sensors and accelerometer-based leveling sensors to detect the resulting changes in its pitch angle and, to maintain balance, it drives its wheels forward or backward as needed to return its pitch to upright. In the process, the rider establishes and then maintains a desired speed by modulating the extent and duration of their fore/aft weight shifts. To turn and steer, the rider shifts the handlebar to the left or right.

In China, Police have begun using Segways to patrol certain public areas, such as Tian'anmen square. Police also use them in Beijing International Airport.


TITTOYS #SF021 1/6th scale Thinking Electric Self-Balancing Scooters (model) is not an electric functioning model but a static model for use with 12-inch figures. Detailed list: Thinking car, Storage box x3, Charger, Sticker sheet. Now you can own a 1:6 scale Segway.

Established in July 1974, it is a sub-division of the Police Tactical Unit (PTU). Its primary functions include counter-terrorism, hostage rescue and dealing with crimes (usually involving firearms) which are considered too dangerous for regular police to handle. The unit was formerly trained by the British SAS before the handover of Hong Kong to China.

August 2015 Haul #2: Hot Toys 1/6 Commando, Batman, Catwoman, Ultraman and Firefighter

August is almost coming to an end but not before I post my second haul of toys / action figures I managed to grab hold of before the month ends :) This simply translates to more fun stuff to post and more action figures to review on my toy blog. Among the stuff I got are: Hot Toys MMS276 1/6th scale John Matrix Collectible Figure from the 1985 American action thriller movie Commando starring Arnold Schwarzenegger (preview pictures posted HERE), DC Collectibles Batman action figure from The New Batman Adventures animated series, Bandai Ultra-Act X S.H.Figuarts Ultraman action figure and the Playmobil 5367 City Action Special Forces Firefighter figure.


Commando was a box office success grossing over $57.5 million against a $10 million budget. The film debuted at number one on October 6, 1985 in the United States and spent three consecutive weeks at the top position. The original concept was for an Israeli special forces–Mossad agent who, sick of the continual death and destruction in the Middle East, emigrates from Israel to the United States, where he is forced out of his self-imposed retirement after his daughter is kidnapped. This was modified and further adapted when Schwarzenegger was cast; some of the original dialogue can be heard in the deleted scenes when Matrix says he regrets his past actions. Arnold Schwarzenegger portrays Col. John Matrix, a retired Delta Force operator who returns to battle to rescue his daughter who has been kidnapped.

Preview Lightning Toys 1/6th scale Lron Armor Girl Action Figure aka Pepper Potts Iron Woman

Ever wonder what would happen if Pepper Potts had a custom-made Iron Man suit designed for her by Tony Stark, one that would fit the contours of her body and make her an Iron Woman?

What you are seeing is the Lightning Toys 1/6th scale Lron Armor Girl Action Figure, touted as the world's first wearable female Iron Man armor also known as female mechanical battle figure (wearable and pose-able).

Comparison pictures of Hot Toys 1:6 scale Black Widow female action figures with Cap and Stark

You can buy the from Sideshow Collectibles

continued from previous post...

Having already reviewed the Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS288 "Avengers: Age of Ultron" 1/6th scale Scarlett Johansson Black Widow 12-inch Collectible Figure in my earlier toy blog posts HERE (box packaging and contents) and HERE (Black Widow with her various weapons), I wanted to see how this latest Black Widow compares in terms of size (height) with the other previously released Hot Toys Black Widow action figures. I have the Hot Toys MMS124 "Iron Man 2" 1/6th scale Black Widow Figure (review posted HERE and HERE) and the Hot Toys MMS178 The Avengers 1/6th scale Black Widow Limited Edition 12-inch Female Figure (reviewed HERE and HERE) for comparison, as well as the Hot Toys Collector's Edition MMS92 (Movie Masterpiece Series) 1/6th scale Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson) 12-inch Female Action Figure (pictures HERE).


I have already posted comparison pictures of Hot Toys 1:6 scale Catwoman (Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle from "The Dark Knight Rises") with Black Widow, Batman Returns Catwoman and Batman in an earlier toy blog post HERE. There is a distinct height disparity between Catwoman and Black Widow. I guess that's because Anne Hathaway is 1.73m tall (5 ft 7 in) while Scarlett Johansson's height is 163 cm or 5 ft 4 in. I think Hot Toys is trying to stay true to scale in terms of the actor's height. That's nice to know but it wasn't always so. Hence this post to show the differences in height of Hot Toys female action figures in relation to each other and where Black Widow stands with Captain America and Tony Stark.

Check out Pangaea PG04 - 1/6th scale French Crusader General - Balian 12-inch action figure

The Crusades were military campaigns sanctioned by the Catholic Church in the Middle Ages. Pope Urban II proclaimed the First Crusade in 1095 with the stated goal of restoring Christian access to the Holy Land leading to an intermittent 200-year struggle. Crusade is a modern term derived from the French croisade and Spanish cruzada and by 1750, the various forms of the word "crusade" had established themselves in English, French, and German. When a crusader swore a vow (a votus) to be fulfilled on successfully reaching Jerusalem they were granted a cloth cross (crux) to be sewn into their clothes. This "taking of the cross", the crux, eventually became associated with the entire journey. They saw themselves as undertaking an iter, a journey, or a peregrinatio, an armed pilgrimage.


This is the upcoming Pangaea PG04 - 1/6th scale French Crusader General - Balian 12-inch figure which will feature: Detailed sculpted head with synthetic hair wig; every piece is professionally hand painted. ACI Medium Built Body "Christian", new improved version, over 30 points of articulation. 5 interchangeable gloved hands in various poses (3 left gloved hands and 2 right gloved hands), Cloak, Surcoat, Tunic, Breeches, Handmade fabric boots with spurs, Norman conical helmet (die-cast metal), Chain mail hauberk and chain mail coif (plastic), Chain mail chausses (plastic), Great sword (die-cast metal blade) with scabbard and baldric, Shield with holding straps

VERYCOOL (VCF-2026) 1/6th scale ACU Camo Female Shooter is 12-inch Megan Fox figure

Why do most 1:6 scale manufacturers continue to produce 12-inch female figures that are unrealistic to the theme? Case in point: these latest preview pictures of VERYCOOL (VCF-2026) 1/6th scale ACU Camouflaged Female Shooter showing a rather nice female figure in military gear. On closer examination, it is revealed that she is wearing very little on top. Too little to afford her any protection from the chilly weather or other elements that she may encounter in the field. Is it because 1:6 scale figure makers feel the need to pander to the very much male dominated military figure collector market? Why not give the poor girl more clothes to put on and let the individual 12-inch figure collector decide whether he wants to keep her top on as it is or cut off some of the top to make her look more sexy (and unrealistic). I would have been on this like a heartbeat if not for the itsy bitsy tiny weeny little top. This is made all the more poignant in the same week when for the first time in military history, two women graduated from the excruciating 62-day Ranger School at Fort Benning.


VERYCOOL (VCF-2026) 1/6th scale ACU Camo Female Shooter will come with Real Like Rooted Hair Head Sculpt (looks a bit like Megan Fox, who shot to fame as Mikaela Banes in the 2007 blockbuster action film Transformers), VC 3.0 Large Bust Female Body (Soft Breasts), Sunglasses, Wrist Watch, Black Beanie Hat, Middle East Scarf, ACU Camo Shirt, ACU Camo Tactical Pants, PVC Knee Pads, Waist Belt, Military Boots, M4 Assault Rifle, M4 Grab Handle, M4 Flashlight, M4 Rifle Telescope, P226 Pistol, Pistol Mag, Pistol Holster, Climbing Buckle, Earphone + Intercom, Infantry Pack, GP Pouch, Cartridge Recycling Bag, Three Pairs of Hands and 3 Gloved Hands.

HYTOYS 1/6th scale HK CID Senior Inspector 12-inch figure is Donnie Yen from Sha Po Lang

Donnie Yen Ji-dan (born 27 July 1963) is a Hong Kong-based Chinese martial artist, film director and producer, action choreographer, and world wushu tournament medalist. Yen is credited by many for contributing to the popularization of the traditional martial arts style known as Wing Chun. He played Wing Chun grandmaster Ip Man in the 2008 film Ip Man, which was a box office success. This has led to an increase in the number of people taking up Wing Chun, leading to hundreds of new Wing Chun schools to be opened up in mainland China and other parts of Asia. (source: wiki)

Yen is considered to be Hong Kong's top action star; director Peter Chan mentioned that he "is the 'it' action person right now" and "has built himself into a bona fide leading man, who happens to be an action star." Yen is widely credited for bringing mixed martial arts (MMA) into the mainstream of Chinese culture, by choreographing MMA in many of his recent films. Yen has displayed notable skills in MMA, being well-versed in boxing, kickboxing, taekwondo, Muay Thai, wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Wing Chun, and Wushu.


SPL: Sha Po Lang is a 2005 Hong Kong-Chinese action film written and directed by Wilson Yip, starring Simon Yam, Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung. Yam portrays a retiring police detective who resorts to the use of questionable methods in order to catch Wong Po (Hung), a ruthless triad boss. The title Sha Po Lang refers to three words derived from Chinese astrology that each represent a different star capable of good or evil depending on their position in the heavens.

Hot Toys Avengers: Age of Ultron 1/6th Scarlett Johansson Black Widow 12-inch Figure Review II

You can buy this from Sideshow Collectibles

continued from previous post...

The previous Hot Toys 1:6 scale Black Widow collectible figures all had minimal accessories. This recently released Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS288 "Avengers: Age of Ultron" 1/6th scale Scarlett Johansson Black Widow 12-inch Collectible Figure doesn't suffer the same fate. In my second part action figure review of Hot Toys AOU (Age Of Ultron) Black Widow figure, I'm showing her with all the different weapons she comes with. For the box packaging and contents, you can check out my earlier toy blog post review HERE.


First off, there are the pair of 1:6 scale real-like electric shock effect accessories that come with the figure which you slip onto her pair of red-colored wrist guards with Widow’s Bite bracelets. I also switch out the pair of relaxed hands to the fists that were also included. A pair of palms for holding her weapons, and a pair of hands for holding her batons are included as well. There's a push dagger (alternately known as: push knife, gimlet knife, fist knife, push dirk, T-handled knife or punch dagger) attached to her belt. The push dagger is a short-bladed dagger with a "T" handle designed to be grasped in the hand so that the blade protrudes from the front of one's fist, typically between the index and middle finger. The push dagger is popular as a close-combat weapon for civilians and selected military forces. Unfortunately, this particular push dagger is molded together with the sheath and is non-removable. The ones included with 12-inch military figures are removable and Hot Toys should have made it so.

Review 1: Hot Toys Avengers: Age of Ultron 1/6 Scarlett Johansson Black Widow 12-inch Figure

You can buy this from Sideshow Collectibles

Black Widow (Natalia Alianovna "Natasha" Romanova, also known as Natasha Romanoff) is a fictional superhero appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was first introduced as a Russian spy, an antagonist of the superhero Iron Man. Black Widow trained as a spy, martial artist, and sniper, and was outfitted with an arsenal of high-tech weaponry, including a pair of wrist-mounted energy weapons dubbed her "Widow's Bite". She later defected to the United States, becoming an agent of the fictional spy agency S.H.I.E.L.D., and a member of the superhero team the Avengers.

In March 2009, Scarlett Johansson signed on to play Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow in multiple films, beginning with 2010's Iron Man 2. Since then, Scarlett Johansson has portrayed the character in the films Marvel's The Avengers (2012), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) and is set to reprise the role in Captain America: Civil War (2016) as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. Hot Toys has released every Black Widow action figure from the films, starting with Scarlett Johansson's appearance as Black Widow in Iron Man 2 (2010) to the most recent Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). Altogether four 1:6 scale Black Widow figures have been released.


This is the recently released Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS288 "Avengers: Age of Ultron" 1/6th scale Scarlett Johansson Black Widow 12-inch Collectible Figure which was part of my August 2015 haul (posted on my toy blog HERE). This is the fourth Black Widow figure Hot Toys has released and I will be covering this femme fatale as part of my action figure review.

HingSan Wolverine Collectible Light with 1:1 scale claws - now you can be Wolverine too!

This is the HingSan Wolverine Collectible Light with 1:1 scale Wolverine Claws classified as Movie Props and Replicas which I got in earlier this month (see my August 2015 haul HERE). It's one of those few 1:1 scale stuff I own because most of these 1:1 scale movie props are just too expensive for my liking and I would rather spend on 12-inch figures as I get more satisfaction out of them than props and life-size replicas. Plus 1:1 scale items will take up a lot more space and I feel they are best suited for those who are into cosplay and costumes which I am not. Still I couldn't help myself when I saw this Wolverine Collectible Light with 1:1 scale Wolverine Claws because most importantly it wasn't expensive (anything that costs a lot less than a Hot Toys figure isn't considered expensive and this Wolverine Collectible Light with 1:1 scale Wolverine Claws is only half the price of a Hot Toys figure LOL) plus it can be used as a light decor, collectible display, conversational piece and the best part is, the claws are removable for cosplay. It all sounds too good to be true but because my retailer was bringing it in, it has to be real!


The 1:1 scale Wolverine Claws are painted to look metallic and can be removed for cosplay or just used for fooling around as it fits in between the fingers and makes you look like Wolverine from the X-Men films. The Wolverine claws can be placed back in the holder / recess when not is use. This is a Marvel licensed product made from ABS with LED light up features. Dimensions: 348.5mm x 301mm x 83mm

Review III: Virtual Toys 1/6th Weapon Advisor 12-inch Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox figure

continued from previous post...

This is my third-part action figure review post of Virtual Toys 1/6th scale Weapon Advisor which is essentially a 12-inch Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox figure as seen in the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy. The boxed set specially features: 1/6th scale Head sculpt, 12-inch action figure Body, Blue shirt, sweater, Blue suit, Brown coat, Beige slacks, Bow Tie, Brown belt, Brown scarf, Brown boots, Six hands, Glasses, Silver Pen, Clipboard with Paper, Newspaper, Map, The BAT blueprint, and Military computer. I've already covered the box packaging and content in the first-part review posted on my toy blog HERE where I stripped the figure down to his "fat" suit which gives this figure a paunch to be movie-accurate. Close-up pictures / views of the Virtual Toys Weapon Advisor 1/6th scale head sculpt were also shown as well as the very cool looking Wayne Enterprises Applied Sciences Division military computer / laptop with nice details and a sturdy construction.


Like I said before, if Hot Toys isn't going to do it, then you can bet someone else will – FigureMasters will be releasing a 1/6th Sir Patrick Stewart as Professor X 12-inch Collectible Action Figure (posted earlier HERE) and Figure Club has already released a 1/6th scale The League of Shadows "Ducard" Ninja Shadow Master figure which I reviewed HERE and HERE.

This final review shows the 12-inch Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox figure wearing the Brown coat and Brown scarf as he goes to the office in chilly Gotham weather, carrying his military computer, clipboard and newspaper.

Check out Threezero 1/6th scale Breaking Bad Jesse Pinkman 12-inch figure & pre-order info

Jesse Bruce Pinkman is the deuteragonist of Breaking Bad. He is the former partner of Walter White in the methamphetamine drug trade. Jesse was a small-time methamphetamine user, manufacturer, and dealer. He was also an inattentive student in Walter White's chemistry class, leading to his dropping out.

Check out this upcoming Worldbox "Resident Evil 3: Nemesis" 1/6th scale Nemesis creature - RUN!

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, known in Japan as Biohazard 3: Last Escape, is a survival horror video game developed by Capcom and originally released for the PlayStation video game console in 1999. It is the third instalment in the Resident Evil video game series and takes place before and after the events of Resident Evil 2. The story of the game follows Resident Evil protagonist Jill Valentine and her efforts to escape from a city that has been infected with a new type of biological weapon secretly developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis features a larger number of enemies for the player to defeat and introduces the eponymous Nemesis creature (also called the Pursuer or Chaser), which periodically pursues the player from one area to the next until the end of the game. Besides Resident Evil 3, it is also featured on various merchandise and in the 2004 film Resident Evil: Apocalypse.


In the series' story, the Nemesis is the result of infecting a Tyrant — a humanoid bio-weapon created to be the ultimate life-form — with a parasitic organism designed to increase its intelligence. Upon infection, the parasite takes control of the Tyrant's nervous system, forming its own brain and enabling it to follow precise instructions and make decisions without a need for constant direction. Clothed in black trousers, an overcoat, boots, and gloves, the Nemesis is armed with a rocket launcher mounted on its left arm. To emphasize its design as a prototype, the game developers left exposed muscles on its body and added stitches to cover the right eye.

Kotobukiya Marvel Now! Magik ARTFX+ Statue

Kotobukiya’s hit line of Marvel Comics Avengers ARTFX+ Statues paved the way for the next incredible comic-based series in this great scale, the X-Men of Marvel Now! In 2012 the comic book company relaunched several titles, shifting some characters into different books and updating some for a modern audience. More than anything, it provided a perfect jumping on point for new readers. Now the characters are brought to life as never before based on concept artwork by superstar artist Adi Granov, who was also responsible for the Avengers series. Joining previously released Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Magneto is the team’s teleporter and sorceress Magik!

Magik was introduced in Marvel Comics in 1975, but back then she was just Illyana Rasputin, the kid sister of Piotr Rasputin (better known as Colossus). Illyana is a mutant as well with the power to teleport herself and others. As if that wasn’t cool enough, she also became a powerful sorceress thanks to her connection to Limbo and wields the mighty Soulsword!


Magik takes her place among Cyclops’ team of fearless X-Men with a stunning new look, standing at attention and letting her massive sword do the talking. She is posed dynamically with her feet spread apart, her hands laid on top of the pommel of her Soulsword stuck into the ground before her. The eldritch mutant wears a unique costume consisting of thigh high leather boots, short shorts, a halter top with armored shoulders, armbands, and gloves. Her highly detailed sculpt brings out all of the cool little elements of her clothing like the buckles on her footwear, the spikes and armored fingers of her left arm, and the shafts extending from hair. Magik’s costume is almost all black with silver accents and the red “X” on her shoulder, all of which contrasts nicely with her pale skin, blonde hair, and solid white eyes. Meanwhile, her Soulsword radiates with an intense yellow energy.

Square Enix Play Arts Kai DC Comics Variant 1/7th Batman Timeless: Steampunk Batman

Pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles

Steampunk refers to a subgenre of science fiction and sometimes fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.[1][2] Although its literary origins are sometimes associated with the cyberpunk genre, steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century's British Victorian era or American "Wild West", in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has maintained mainstream usage, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. It may, therefore, be described as neo-Victorian.

Through generations, there has always been a force of justice that agents of crime, chaos, and evil have contended with. Every incarnation of Batman that existed throughout time stood as a beacon of hope and a reflection of the age it is a part of. Inspired by the fantastic sci-fi subgenre of steampunk, the Variant Play Arts KAI welcomes a new Batman to the fold.


Batman Timeless is the Play Arts Variant line of redesigned Batman figures. Each one is based on either a specific designers vision, or an interpretation of how a Batman would have appeared in a historical setting. The latest entry in the line is the Play Arts Variant Steampunk Batman, a 19th century Victorian-era styled Batman. Multiple gears and cogs can be seen through a transparent piece in the chest armor, and burnished bronze metallic color is used throughout. This figure has a dignified, almost classical aura, emphasized by a five-layer structure of the cape which hearkens back to designs by da Vinci. The redesigned 19th century themed Batman includes a crossbow styled grapnel gun, a few interchangeable hands and a figure stand.
